State of Mind Charity visit Manor Croft

Jimmy Gittins and Ian smith from the Rugby League Charity 'State of Mind' spoke to Year 11 today in the run up to their exams.  They gave an excellent thought provoking talk on the importance of mental fitness and how they should and could be preparing for this stressful time.

Year 11 thoroughly enjoyed the morning and have taken lots from the stories the two speakers told.  Ian a former Super League referee and Jimmy an ex professional rugby player who was paralysed in a Rugby League match 17 years ago.  Resilience, hard work and determination were the themes of the presentation and this is exactly what our students will need over the upcoming weeks.  Many thanks to Ian and Jimmy for an inspirational morning.
